The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office made an arrest Wednesday in the burglary of the spring home shared by Evan Longoria, David Price and Reid Brignac, the St. Petersburg Times reports.

22-year-old Steven Charles Vaughn, who was already in the Charlotte County Jail on unrelated charges, was arrested and charged with armed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, grand theft and dealing in stolen property.

None of the stolen property, which included an AK-47 assault rifle belonging to Longoria, was recovered.

“None of the stuff was returned,” Longoria said. “But closure is closure, and we’re happy about that.”

Jewelry, a 60-inch television and three iPads were also taken in the burglary.  Several additional arrests are expected in the case.

Phillies sign Trevor Plouffe to minor league deal

Infielder Trevor Plouffe has signed a minor league deal with the Phillies, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports. Plouffe asked for and was granted his release from the Rangers earlier this month.

Plouffe, 31, had a double and a home run in 17 plate appearances with Triple-A Round Rock to start the 2018 season. He spent last year with the Athletics and Rays, putting up a meager .198/.272/.318 batting line in 100 games.

Plouffe has mostly played third base throughout his career, but can also handle the other three infield spots and both outfield corners, so he’ll serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the Phillies.
